[libclang] Return deduced type for auto type, not the one written in the source.

Authored by skalinichev on Aug 12 2015, 4:09 AM.



It used to work, but was accidentally broken by:

r179769 | akirtzidis | 2013-04-18 20:41:15 +0400 (Thu, 18 Apr 2013) | 4 lines

[libclang] Report parameter array types as written in source, not decayed to pointer types.

Patch by Doug.

The issue with decayed types was fixed by:

r190796 | akirtzidis | 2013-09-16 21:26:23 +0400 (Mon, 16 Sep 2013) | 3 lines

[libclang] Don't report a DecayedType as "unexposed", report it as the original (as written) type.

Patch by Anders Waldenborg!

So this patch partially reverts r179769, and adds more tests.

Test results (clang-test):
Expected Passes : 8287
Expected Failures : 13
Unsupported Tests : 142

This also fixes:

With this patch applied, class variables type is printed as <class>:

This is actually an unrelated issue (clang_getTypeDeclaration doesn't handle the auto type)

Using "c-index-test -test-print-type --std=c++14" on your example I get:
VarDecl=z ... [type=std::basic_string<char>] ...

So, as you can see, "z" has correct type.

Anyway here is a quick fix for clang_getTypeDeclaration (will create a review request for it later on):

I can confirm that this patch fixes a number test cases found in ycmd (a code-completion server). Specifically these ones marked as 'sic'

So I'm in favour of this change :)

As this doesn't break any old tests, and fixes a significant number of issues, LG.
Do you need me to submit?
